Abbie and Bob -
Abbie and Bob along

Obedience trials held on 26 & 27 July. Abbie and Jan were after their
3rd pass in CCD while Bob and Lyn were still chasing that elusive 1st
pass in CCD. What a weekend it turned out to be!!
Abbie started the
ball rolling, achieving her 3rd pass and title on Saturday morning while
Bob had several of his "moments", although he did score a 20 on his
recall!! Saturday afternoon and Bob scored his 1st pass with not one of
those "moments" to be seen. Abbie scored another pass and a 4th in the
ring with Bob close by in 5th.
But the best was
yet to come...Sunday morning and Bob was totally focused. His achieved
his 2nd pass along with a 1st in the ring. The phones ran hot! While
Abbie and Jan headed for home, Bob and Lyn headed into the ring for the
final time for the weekend. Another pass and another 5th in the ring. 2
titles and a 1st place - not a bad weekend's work - well done everyone.
